The clouds although large and heavy just drifted overhead making for dramatic views and moments of pure brilliant sunshine making us throw off our fleeces and don hats. We even had our shadows walking with us.
A wonderful walk - simple pleasures (and scones!) then back home to work in our little piece of (overgrown) Eden!
I thought I would share a recipe with you - one inspired by a flapjack I'd had a few weeks ago and thought 'I can make that' and after a few tries and a few alterations - yes I can!
Welcome to ....
Sunny Street Flapjacks
Pre heat oven to 180 deg c (gas mark 4 - I think!)
Line a square baking tin (20cm x 20cm-ish) with greaseproof paper
- 200gm butter
- 200gm sugar
- 150gm golden syrup
- 100gm chopped mixed nuts
- 100gm cranberries
- 100gm chopped prunes
- 375gm porridge oats
Hope you try them - and if you do - let me know what you think!!
Has anyone else felt it? That shift in the seasons. The taste in the air?
That softly scented decay drifting on the early morning breath. An earthy tang rising from the soil.
Working today down below the plant canopy with my hands busy in the garden - it felt damp and crumbly. The humus smell filled my head.
Harebells abound and tree leaves have lost their summery shade of green hinting at tones of rust.
I am not ready.
